Will this breakfront blend with my traditional dining room? (pics

My in-laws are scaling down and moving from their large home into senior housing. They are offering this breakfront to my husband and me. The piece is lovely, but I am wondering if it will blend with my cherry Queen Anne table and traditional home.

The breakfront, table, chairs and server were purchase in 1960 and I don't believe it is cherry, though comparing a drawer from my china closet, the stain is pretty close. I feel the woods will blend, but am more concerned about the style/period. Your thoughts???

If you're not very matchymatchy, it should be fine, but it has a definite '70s look. Not in a bad way! Have you asked the decorating forum?

I love how the chairs repeat the top of the cabinet--it would almost be a crime to separate the set! :)
